We made it through another cold Monday and here we are inching our way to Friday with a grin and a tickle. Take some time to unfreeze and spin down with these snaps.


World’s Largest Ski Hat

This is the world’s largest hat, it is 700 feet long and was created in 1977 in Germany by Ginny Woodward and Scott Hadley. The hat is so long that it was used as advertising for many local businesses back in 1977. Of the 539 different ad panels that were knitted into the hat only 25 of them still exist today.

I know this isn't a very important story, but PLEASE get your facts straight. That picture of the ski hat is from Sandpoint, Idaho, not Germany.

"A 700-feet-long knitted ski hat, made in 1977, by Ginny Woodward, was recently showcased during Sandpoint’s Winter Carnival.

The Guinness Book of Records official website the record for the longest knitted hat is held by Germany, for a giant Santa Claus hat 22-feet-long and 49 feet in circumference. But the people of Sandpoint, Idaho have recently submitted an application for what they claim is truly the world’s longest ski hat, and to show they’re serious about their claim, they took the 700-meter-long ski hat for an outing, during the annual Sandpoint Winter Carnival.

According to press clippings at the Bonner County Historical Society & Museum, the hat was knitted back in 1977, by locals Ginny Woodward and Scott Hadley, who were looking for something to distract them from the long winters in the Panhandle. It was made using a punch card-operated knitting machine and weighs an impressive 80 pounds.

The world’s longest ski hat features 539 advertising panels of local business from around Sandpoint and Bonner County, in 1977. Out all these, only 25 are still around today."
